The State University of Applied Sciences (PWSZ in Elbląg) was established on July 1, 1998. Since its foundation, our University has granted 9560 graduation diplomas (7579 diplomas to graduates of full-time programs, 1981 diplomas to graduates of part-time programs) and 3208 post-graduate diplomas. Over a quarter of our students originate from rural areas, which three times exceeds the national rate. In this way, our vocational university, similarly to nearly all vocational universities, prevents young people living in rural areas from social exclusion, resulting from limited access to higher education.
Currently, the PWSZ in Elbląg provides education to almost 1700 students in eleven fields of 1st cycle studies (bachelor and engineering), offered by the Institutes of Applied Informatics, Technology, Pedagogy Languages, Economics. We also offer 2nd cycle education in seven fields of studies. All of the study programs comply with the Polish legislative acts concerning higher education and with the Bologna Process, which comprises all the European Higher Education Area countries.
